    "Recessed lens board fits Speed Graphic", no it was a Linhof baby Technica board, APUG member on Ebay bebberbenneringtonbebbers can#t quite spit it out

    "Speed Graphic lens board", Burke and James it appears and did fit.

    The Ebay sale was my worst ever purchase at the time, but when I sorted the boards out the Linhof board almost paid for the rest when I sold it via a wanted advert here (for a very fair price)

    My wife had to sell an item on fleecebay as a project for her marleting class, and evilbay recommends to first time sellers to embellish the description and make it personalized. They even included an example to the students. Go figure!

    I must say that "minty" and "mint-" really drive me nuts (KEH is guilty of the latter). Why can't we use words like excellent, good, fair and poor?

    Uniquely, uncommonly, exceptionally, rare?

    Did I miss anything?
    Some might say I have a bad attitude! Too bad.

    another of my recent favorites...it seems that every crummy old brass lens in barrel is now a Petzval....not even sure why that makes it better but, obviously, it must.

    Rare... Ebay definition: I have another one of these I will put up as "buy it now" at a sky high stupid price just as soon as I sell this one.

    "rare" means the seller has never seen one.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    "Rare" can mean many things. On ebay it can generally be defined as a listing that is half baked.
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    Vintage: requires film

    Sold As-Is: 1) person weeding out the cameras he/she doesnt want and doesnt want to take it back or 2) doesnt work

    I dont know how to test it: 1) person doesnt know how to test it. might work, might not or 2) doesnt work but sill expects a high sell price

    rare: never seen one before, so it must be one of a kind
